We believe that addressing the cyclical nature of hunger and the barriers to dependable access to good nutrition for babies, children and families is fundamental to community well-being and potential.
Too many families struggle every day to feed their children – something, anything, let alone a nutritious meal. We know the stress that these families endure on daily basis and that is why all of our programs support the fundamental goal of ending chronic hunger and resolving food insecurity for the long term.
Our nutrition specific interventions involve a multi-phased approach that starts with immediate provision of food and nutritional training and gradually moves towards increased home and local food production. This approach involves every level of the community – leadership, teachers, parents, and children as well as our own staff, partners and external experts. On a daily basis, households, communities, orphanages, and schools take responsibility for maintaining and executing meal programs and caring for their gardens. The unwavering commitment of so many people is helping us to accomplish zero hunger and increase access to nutritious food.
Hunger afflicts 815 million people. (World Food Programme)
